Hmmm.... slightly bizarre, and slightly good at the same time.
Bizarre as in they clearly haven't thought out the "rules" for this very well. As mentioned, someone's son/daughter away in the army - clearly
there's still need for the room - they still live there, although away serving their country.
And with seperated parents too - both parents need room for the kids! Although I see no problem with two kids sharing a room with the none resident
parent for shorter periods of time (so if the non resident parent has two kids, a two bedroom flat/house should be sufficient, as a bunk bed can be
used, instead of the kids having seperate rooms as it's not on a full time basis).
Good, too... My house is mortgaged, like most houses on my street, but there's a couple that's still council. One of them a single middle aged woman
is living in! A three bedroom house!!! Surely that house can be put to much better used for a family with kids. Although I would prefer the house
to be sold privately... everyone here's got beautiful gardens, apart from the council houses. Guess they don't give a crap what their garden looks
like... I can only assume due to their garden (and house) is being funded by the system, instead of having to work for it.
